My eldest, 20 years in Aug. Is a fan, he has a wide musical interest and loves Bluegrass and Reggae as well. He also plays guitar and mandolin.

My youngest, 18, has just heard too much Dead in her time. She also listens to a wide range of music, from classics like Led Zep, Jimi, Janis to Reggae and more contemporary stuff.

I've never asked my daughter what she likes or dislikes. I can't handle the truth. However, I loaded her MP3 player and included AmBeauty and have noticed her playing that album when she's bored of Disney Jams and Jonas Bros.

My boy, on the other hand, is obsessed with trains. So ANY song which mentions a train is in his wheelhouse.

"Dad! Is this a train song?"

He's 4. So whether it's a blues tune like So Many Roads, So Many Trains to Ride, or bluegrass like Texas Eagle by Steve Earle and Del McCoury, or Monkey and The Engineer he's all over it. He does not care who's singin' or playin'.

I see trouble ahead in preschool if he gets into Casey Jones. Class singalong time could be interesting.
